Despite challenges in our markets, we’ve maintained our multi-channel leadership position and continue to be the UK’s leading home and general merchandise retailer.

Who we are and what we do

As the UK's leading multi-channel retailer we have continued to shape the future of shopping through digital retail leadership and multi-channel capability. Both businesses have expanded product choice and services, enhanced store and product presentation and delivered further value for our customers.

We have plans in place for future growth

With our strong financial position we were able to invest in the strategic growth plans in both businesses, and have made good progress. These plans are important for the Group’s future because, as one of the UK’s leading home and general merchandise retailers, it participates in a competitive market where shopping behaviours are changing rapidly. We believe we can innovate and lead in this changing market and thereby secure long-term business growth.

The Group has a strong financial position, which will enable us to invest in the Argos Transformation plan to reinvent itself as a digital retail leader, and in the Homebase Renewal plan. Overall, the Group is well positioned for the future.
